More undocumented immigrant children arrive in North Texas

About 100 undocumented immigrant children, mostly from Central America, began to arrive at Sabine Creek Ranch near Royse City on Saturday, the latest to be temporarily housed in North Texas.

Others came to Ellis County earlier this month and are being housed there.

They were met by one lone protestor and otherwise settled in without incident.

Rockwall County officials said they had toured the facilities and found them to be set up properly.

Under federal law they can be held for 21 days while officials process them for the trip back to their home country, or find family here in the United States.

Federal officials say that more than 10,000 undocumented and unaccompanied children have crossed the border over the last few months, fleeing violence or economic hardship in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
